Fun Facts About Minuscule

My kids saw a trailer for this movie a couple months ago and instantly wanted to see the movie. The actual trailer they saw is the one I included. Right from the trailer they loved the little ladybug blowing a raspberry at the flies. I thought the whole idea of an almost dialogue free video rather intriguing myself so I decided to watch it with them.
Anyone who has watched old black and white movies or TV knows that sometimes dialogue can be overrated and done right a show with little to no dialogue can be even more funny because almost the entire dialogue can be created in your own head each time you watch the movie.
Personally I found the video to be absolutely hilarious and my kids were thrilled to see the ladybug working with the black ants in the war against the red ants. The movie was quite good and definitely something most kids and a lot of parents will find fun and enjoyable.
